I got an issue similar to few known topics but at the same quite different.
I am creating TS from scratch and I might be missing something, but I've used wizard, so by default it added steps like Restart in WIn PE, bitlocker etc.
The problem is, that when TS starts, it reboots the device to get into win PE, but instead it is hanging on
For very long time, to get another reboot and then enter win PE. This is a Vmware virtual machine and I got no idea why it does that. I can't get the log from machine, because F8 doesn't work on that screen to bring up CMD. All that ConfigMgr says from its side is:
:The task sequence execution engine performed a system reboot initiated by the action (Restart in Windows PE) in the group (Install Operating System)
And it's all. It just sits there. IS there anything I might forgot to do? Did wrong or I could check?
